ABOUT US


Because it’s not always easy to find a cultural event to go to and because most often it doesn’t match your expectation or taste, we have created CITIBREAK.

CITIBREAK is a free service to assist you in finding your event, wherever you are in Europe, based on your mood or the experience you want to live. CITIBREAK is connected to your network, you can share your best moment with your community and in turn benefit from their recommendation.

With CITIBREAK you’re one click away to find, book and enjoy your journey.


HISTORY


CITIBREAK has been created and developed since 2013 by the trio of Ivan de Gaillande, Jean-Bernard Debreux and Cédric Schmitz, an idea of the latter.

Further to repeated searches to find unusual cultural events to impress his girlfriend, Cedric had this idea: build a service to find any type of cultural event in just “one click”, based on the experience you want to live, the date and your location.

Since then, Cédric is married and keep impressing his wife with CITIBREAK.
